Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana...Review

About the book:
Julia Cavanaugh has never left New York City. But in 1890, the young woman must head west to ensure that the orphans under her care are settled into good families. After her final stop in Montana, she plans to head straight back east. But upon arriving in the remote town of Lonesome Prairie, Julia learns to her horror that she is also supposed to be delivered into the hands of an uncouth miner who carries a bill of purchase for his new bride. She turns to a respected circuit preacher to protect her from a forced marriage but with no return fare and few friends, Julia's options are bleak. What is God's plan for her in the middle of the vast Montana prairie?

A light Christian romance, set in the late 19th century.  Julia is a little too perfect, other characters are annoying and the plot is predictable.  It's full of mix-ups, accidental shootings, a bad guy, the lovely newcomer and the preacher.  The orphan trains have always fascinated me and this account is interesting.   Those who like the Love Finds You series, will enjoy this.  This one is perfect when you want something light to read.  It's a sweet diversion, nothing special. 

This is the first Love Finds You book I've read, but the series seems to be quite popular.
